Timepiece is the group’s latest choral spectacle which is being presented as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

Starting from midday and running through until midnight, every hour on the hour members of Norwich-based group are performing original music in the historic city landmark.

A solo singer began the spectacle which will build up to the full 150-strong choir, plus soloists and instrumentalists, presenting a concert tonight before the music fades back to a single voice at midnight.

The whole performance – which features music written by Orlando Gough, Jonathan Baker and Sian Croose and takes place across various parts of the cathedral’s cloisters and garth – explores our relationship with time.
